JANIE the new girl......


I must be on a roll here because I have managed to come up with another girlie bear:o)) Don't ask me how this happened as I couldn't tell you - haven't got a clue! She's turned out to be a pretty smart old timer though you wouldn't think so if you saw the trouble I had trying to get her pictures done:o))  I'm on a mission today to hunt down vintatge style bits and pieces to add as accessories for my oldies - very time consuming but totally enjoyable:o))
Ok, I'm outta here and hope you all have a good weekend!

New bear on the block.......


Hope you all had a good weekend:o)) I finished another new bear over the weekend who is a little bit different in design but still enjoyed making him. Notice I said 'him' yep it's another boy bear - did try for a girl but it just wasn't going to happen, so what's new! LOL!
Today hubby has decided to act the part of Lumberjack and take down a very tall Palm that is growing too close to the house - this is at the back of the house as we also have a very tall one growing at the front of the house as well. Now, the best part is he wants me to hang on to the rope! Why me?! What have I done to deserve this and as you can imagine I am not having a very good feeling about this ho-hummm! I just hope he knows what he is doing LOL!

TINKER the swap bear......

Well I hope you all had a good weekend and they certainly fly pass don't they! I spent most of mine dying pieces of mohair and grooming and clipping one of the dogs so now she is looking a very smart girlie - though I got no thanks for it just a look of 'did you really have to do that because I didn't enjoy it one bit'! With Winter just about upon us it is already getting colder and time to drag the Winter woolies out of retirement. When the dogs start snuggling up and are not too keen to go on their adventures around the garden and Amy gets inside the pillow cover instead of on top and rolls on her back to have her doggie coat on then you know it is cold LOL!
Well I can now reveal the swap bear I sent to my swap partner in the UK and after keeping everything crossed I can let a huge sigh of relief as he arrived there safely and she is very happy and pleased with him - I now await the arrival of her bear to me!
Hope you all have a good week - I'm off to the beach today for a good walk with the dogs:o))

Is it a boy?! Is it a girl?! Hooray! it is a girlie bear:o)) Why am I shouting well it doesn't happen very often if at all that I can come up with a girlie bear - I always seem to produce boy bears without even trying, big sighs! I wasn't too sure about the head but friends assure me it is a nice head and its fine, ummmm! Well, all I can say is that the head must be nice as I have just sold her so happy smiles:o))
The mystery of the old guy in my previous post is still on going though it has been established that he is English and someone was more than sure that he is a Alpha Farnell dating from the late 40's/50's which I would go along with as I found a picture of a bear that looks so much like him but then someone else has come along and he reckons that is not right and that he is a Chiltern dating from the 30's - how confusing! Back to more researching though I tend to be in favour of the Alpha Farnell.
